Alaska: Days 5 & 6

May 13, 2013

On Saturday morning we got together with the small congregation at St. Paul Church here in Fairbanks.  We attended this church for about two years while we lived here and were excited to give them an update and meet their new pastor.  It was a casual setting with a few pictures and video thrown in, lots of great questions, and fun seeing the folks again.

We  had a restful afternoon, with more naps by everyone, and the kids got to play outside.  Since it’s been reaching 60F (16C), the snow has been melting quickly, less than half is left from when we arrived on Tuesday.  The ground is even drying out in places, but Millie still found the one puddle in the yard for jumping.  Ah well…  There is a swing set and play house in the yard at our hosts’ house, so the kids are soaking it in.  Saturday night we enjoyed a date night in, with the new Les Mis and an Oreo McFlurry (pregnancy craving met!).

Sunday morning we went off to our other church home here in Fairbanks, University Park Bible Church.  We enjoyed the service with great friends and took over the Sunday School hour with our review of our year in DRC and answering questions.  In addition to being long time friends, the folks at UPark are already supporting us in a big way with prayer and financial partnership, so it was a great time to reconnect in person.

We attempted a Mother’s Day picnic at a park but the wind was a bit too chilly to be comfortable, so we enjoyed watching the ice float across a pond from our car while we ate.  It was still fun and the kids loved to dance to songs on the radio.

This afternoon was yet another long nap and more playtime outside…followed by a very late bedtime – the light is messing with the kids’ heads, too!  Another week of fun get togethers with friends has begun!
